Tuesday, April 8 2014 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
The weather outside is not conducive to planting your spring garden, but now is the time to come to a workshop that will give beginning to advanced gardeners tips for a successful growing season. Seneca County Cornell Cooperative Extension (SCCCE) Master Gardener (MG) volunteers will present a “Gardening 101” workshop at both the Seneca Falls and Ovid libraries on Tuesday night, April 8th from 6:30 to 8PM. Whether you are new to gardening or an old pro, this workshop will set you on the path to gardening glory, whether you want to plant vegetables, herbs or flowers.
Topics will include planning, site selection, soil management, organic matter, pH, variety selection, weed, pest and disease management, mulching and watering. The talk will include innovations and experiences gleaned from the Seneca County demonstration gardens from 2012 and 2013. There will be time for questions on any garden topic. Bring a soil sample from your garden if you want your pH tested.
Both workshops will be held on April 8th and are free of charge. The Edith B. Ford Memorial Library is located on Main Street in Ovid and the Seneca Falls Library can be found at 47 Cayuga Street, Seneca Falls.
Advance registration is encouraged and appreciated so we can better plan for the classes, but feel free to drop in! Please call the Ovid Library at 607-869-3031 or the Seneca Falls Library at 315-568-8265 to sign up.
